Districts should note that:
No more than 1 designated individual should attend the game per child
The GAA Health Questionnaires MUST be completed by parents/guardians in advance of attendance.
Overall numbers should be kept to a minimum and in line with the space available in the venue/facility.
It has also been clarified that a parent/guardian attending the game in these circumstances shall not be subject to vetting as they are only the supervisor in a guardianship role for their own child and not any other child on the team.
